-term stability stability in central europe and ukraine and countries like that. but putin is a history-making individual. he sees himself as someone who is shaping history. and people like that are inherently destabilizing. so he is the head of really a failing country with a lot of power, a lot of money, and itch to destabilize the world. and so it's his stability, it's his either rise in power or flow in to we are that maybe ultimately was at stake in one of the world's great troublemakers. >> woodruff: let's bring it back home and talk about something that happened in this country this week, mark. and that is arizona zigzag, i guess you could say, where the legislature passed a law saying, a bill saying that merchants, service providers could refuse to provide a service to anyone who is gay. now the governor, jan brewer, republican, vetoed this. what does it all add up to? >> well, american civil liberties union, aclu, the anti-defamation league, adl, add to that apple, marriott, delta airlines, american airlines, marriott hotels, starwood hotels, the loss of any standing for arizon

: every single person told me they have a family member still over in ukraine and worried about their loved ones but also worried about their country. here's what they had to say. >> these last few months i have been losing sleep just watching everything that's going on in ukraine, so it's been a 24 hour schedule and seeing that happen today, it felt like the floor fell out from beneath me. part of me said how could he do this and another part of me was almost expecting this. i was waiting for this to happen. so it's disappointing and it's scary because i do have family that is 20 kilometers from the russian border and speaking with them this morning, they are scared, they are keeping an eye out on everything that's going on and they are scared for their children as well. >> all ukraine wants is just to be -- just to be a regular country, just to be a country where people raise their children, pay their taxes, they have, you know, lego system, just to be like everybody else. they are not antirussian, antisemitic, they want for themselves and their families. >> what do you hope t
country, and that is ukraine. we have seen some, but there may be more russian troops inside of the ukrainian borders and mostly in the crimea area to the south. they say they need production, but it is called a dangerous slide toward war. and throughout ukraine and not just crimea, there are protesters fighting with the crowds, and they have already toppled the highest level government. the ukrainian president left office and fled to russia. white house correspondent jim acosta is with me, and fred polite jen is in moscow, and we will start with jim. first the president made it clear that e he is going to stand with the international community in handling the message with ukraine, and it was a tough message in the 90-minute phone call? >> yes, it was a tough message and we know that the presidents spoke a week and a day ago, but developments have been move sog qui quickly in ukraine with the russian involvement that the president came down hard today in if statement. he said that the united states condemns russia's military intervention in the crimean territory, and i want t
of ukraine. there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. >> reporter: in ukraine, a country on the edge of civil war, a war that could drag in russia, europe and even the u.s., these were frightening developments. >> we are on the edge not of the new cold war, but we are on the edge of hot war. >> reporter: the real danger right now is that ukraine is torn between russia on the one hand, so close and so powerful, so bound to it by history and language, and the west on the other side with its promises of freedom, democracy and prosperity. but where the russian forces moved in today, in crimea, russian is the main language. it's home to a huge russian naval base. they welcomed these mass troops. to them, this is still their rightful president. viktor yanukovych, who fled the capital city of kiev, as protesters took over there, he finally appeared in russia, at a raucous press conference and declared, i am ready to fight for the future of ukraine. but tonight, all eyes are on one man -- putin and what he'll do next. terry moran, abc news, moscow. >>> and i want to bring in abc
on the diplomatic, political and economic front with ukraine similar to a country like finland which is a neighbor of russia which has very close ties with the european union but also has a very good, close economic and political relationship with russia. so i think what you're hearing at the united nations, even though there's a lot of tough rhetoric going on, you heard ambassador samantha power calling it quote ironic that russia's always talking about the sanctity and the sovereignty of other countries, a kind of dig at how the russians have been dealing on syria, but also talking about mediation and talking about how russian interests can be protected. so i think that's really what we're going to see in the next couple of days, maybe a mediator go there, maybe some discussion on how to make sure that russia has a seat at the table here. >> i suppose the trouble is those carrots and sticks i'm sure have been a topic of conversation in all the back and forth we've seen over the last 48, 72 hours before those russian force moved in and yet russia went forward. what we have learned, the president'
.s. and the other western countries and the ukraine are in favor of having these speeches. they're never going to -- russia, a permanent member of the u.n. security council. f f >> the crimea crisis the center of what's going on. diane is standing by with the latest from there. what is the latest, diane? >> reporter: the meeting at the capital is pretty much controlled by various groupings, you have prorussia militias, then you have in nonbody of unidentified -- look like military uniforms, they're organized like the military, they are controlling regional government buildings here. there are many -- there is a lot of speculation in the broader world of course that these are russian military, whoever they are. they are very well organized and act like a military and i did speak to one of them today, asked him where are you from? he said from russia, so the question is, has the russian parliament just approved what is happening on the ground anyway? if there are this large number of russian troops already here, will president putin send more in? and what you have effectively is a situation wher
with opposition leaders. are they able to fight back? >> ukraine is a very, very peaceful country and these people were really trying to put the whole thing together. they really reached out to russian speakers in ukraine and east of ukraine mostly clintojo these protests so there was no pretext for russia to do that. the whole thing is that they were trying to sell this story and by the way, i mentioned one has to remember that part of germany came in to protect and suffered because they had to leave the territory because there was ethnic cleansing. so russia using brutal force, they claim to be provoked but this claim is not valid. now, ukrainians, i think they were starting to bring in a new interim government. the whole thing was very going very peaceful. i met with all of the leaders. i had a long conversation. peaceful intentions to carry out democratic changes, open up ukraine over to europe. that's exactly what vladimir putin cannot forgive them. because if they go democratic like european and the united states, he had to act on this fall sense of protecting more people. so what ukraine ha
direct and a very strong interest in crimea, in ukraine and it's much greater than any other country has. >> it seems to me, and i want to take a quick break, professor, but it seems to me in the old days of the cold war when there were these kinds of tensions there was a hot line between moscow and russia, that phone, that red phone as it was called, the leaders of the united states and russia would get on and talk. is it a possibility that the president of the united states would have this kind of conversation with putin? >> well, we do still have a hot line and we know that president obama spoke for an hour with president putin last week. but frankly, ever since the russians granted political asylum to edward snowden in russia, the u.s.-russian relationship has really deteriorated, they don't talk very often. there is a hot line, i'm sure they'll use it. people would like to deescalate the tensions, but we have now the worst relationship we have had at least since the russia-georgia war and it doesn't look like it's going to get much better. >> that happened in 2008. we're going to co
obama's words, especially dealing with a strategically important country like ukraine. >> the ukraine is a major country in central europe. it's got nearly 50 million people. it's a big space between nato and russia. it's got enormous economic potential. if it tips back into russia's orbit, the hand writing is on the wall for the other formal republics of the soviet union. the lesson america's weakness is becoming pervasive will spread worldwide. putin holds all the high cards and all we have to offer from president obama is rhetoric. >> john boehner says the obama administration's, quote, acquiesce forced putin to take action. >> we can't stress enough the events in the ukraine are developing at a frantic rate. we can't predict what is going to happen, but we can analyze it and we are going to do that where it all may be going with marv marvin kalb. he will join us later in the show. >> we have a powerful pacific storm pounding southern california. the state plagued by extreme drought. now that water is flooding low-lying areas and causing concerns for mud slides there. this as the n
into the crimean, into southern ukraine, which is the predominantly russian territory of that country. they talk of up to 2,000 forces potentially even up to 6,000 forces that might already be on the ground there. and also, the regional government there which is also pro-russian, has said that russian forces that are part of a military base that russia has in that region anyway are already helping them secure government buildings in the main town, the capital of the crimea. the big question, is this happening in retrospect or will we see a big push of russian forces move towards ukraine. >> of course, this comes just hours after, maybe 18 hours after president obama warned russia against military intervention in ukraine. where do we foresee this going in the next couple of steps? i'm not asking you to pull out a crystal ball here, but the president's drawn sort of, without using the phrase, a red line and it seems that russia is prepared to cross it. >> reporter: yeah. the president very much in danger of walking, if you will, another red line trap, sort of similar to the syria chemical weapons
union that would create a very strong trading block. without that key country of ukraine, that prospect of vladimir putin's that dream of creating this trading block, that might just probably fall apart. jonathan. >> and so, phil, what happens next? we know obviously the parliament approved this movement, is there any indication that president putin i understand tends to sends more soldiers in cremia? >> reporter: well, it certainly is a possibility. the russians have said that they are able to, they have used this kind of framework in the russian contusion and the agreement that his exist between ukraine and russia particularly a 1997 agreement in which they said that in there is any threat to security, in particular to that navel base i mentioned that russia can take steps to protect the security of the peninsula there. so there is some wording, but there has already been a lot of criticism about the way that they have jumped through hoops and used loopholes and legal ease to get the vote pass today make it look -- to basically put an official face on it. it wasn't a hard vote to get
ambassadors to ukraine, united states, russia and other countries talked to reporters for about an hour and 10 minutes. >> i briefed the security council on the developments and informed them about the creation of the new government by the overwhelming majority in the parliament this majority constitutional majority, which demonstrated the support not only of the new leaders in the power but also the opposition. yesterday the government was created again by overwhelm inging majority which gives legitimacy and the parliament of government was announced yesterday. it is bringing the vision of how to cope with the current crisis and how to cope with the reach of this crisis and how to stabilize the situation. the basic principles of this program is further tprpl makes of the civil society based on democratic principles and degree of the rights to all the nation of minority including language. a lot of stipulation about that. then unfortunately i informed about the recent developments in crimea crimea. today the parliament issued the resolution explaining that in crimea
situation, ukraine is one of the weakest moments in history. the country is essentially bankrupt. the government, the ex-president left, russia refused to recognize him as a leader. is a lot of reshuffling at the top in the armed forces and just recently, yesterday, the new leader, the new prime minister elected in crimea and the leader of the russian unity block and pro-russian political force and holding a rev referendum in may and what we could be seeing and this is a military inseeing and we are seeing the force. >> sir, there are reports that the troops are not just at the airports but moving to the northern ukraine and are they positioning to cut the peninsula off? >> that is possible as well. but we have to remember that ukraine and formed forces have a number of bases in ukraine. there is a coastal guard. there are at least 40 tanks belonging to the ukrainian armed forces and even if they close it out or block the access from the air they have to deal with the ukraine armed forces there in crimea. >> president obama warned the leaders that will would be costs, but isn't

if ukraine gives up their nuclear weapons. so countries are going to have to be held accountable who signs this memorandum, anderson. >> certainly russia is saying what's happening right now in crimea does prescribe to binational agreements that currently exist. ian lee, thank you, diana and jim as well. >> joining me national security analyst fran townsend, member of the skai and dhs external advisory boards. general marks, when you look at what these russian troops have done, seizing two airports, surrounding this television station, it seems like coup planning 101 these are the first steps people always do in any part of the world when they're seizing a area, correct? >> it's not a coup, it's an invitation, anderson. i think we can state clearly, albeit the administration has not come out and stated this with this degree of certainty, that the russians have invaded the ukraine. remember that crimea is a part of the ukraine. there isn't any additional sovereignty that crimea enjoys beyond what the ukraine has right now. so this type of activity by russia clearly is an effort on their par
in a trilateral agreement with the united states, ukraine, russia and britain, all four countries in the memorandum basically confirmed their support for ukraine's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. as you said, there are russian forces in crimea, but you are now getting reports that additional forces are coming in from outside and they're now doing things that are not associated just with the russian pressa presence at their base, such as setting up roadblocks across the countryside. >> from the russian perspective, what are russia's realistic options here and what do you think they're most likely to do? >> i think this goes back to when viktor yanukovych fled the country, i think there's been a decision taken in moscow to look at ways to destabilize that government. they had various tools, one of which is try to introduce separatist tensions in crimea. they're playing i think a very dangerous game here. >> could we be looking at armed conflict between ukrainian forces and armed russian forces inside ukraine? >> so far ukraine has been extremely restrained. ther
developments in the crisis in ukraine, a short time ago, president obama spoke to president putin about the situation. the call came after the russian parliament gave putin permission to send the country's military into the ukraine. obama warned putin that there would be costs to russia. meanwhile the president's national security team met today to discuss policy options and outside the white house today, protesters called the white house and europe to do more to combat russian aggression in the ukraine. >>> 27 people were killed in china. media reports there say several attackers boarded a train at the railway station. they were all armed with knives and started stabbing people on the train. more than 100 people were injured including four police officers. there have been as many as seven attackers and police reportedly shot all of them. the chinese government is now investigating that attack. >>> a man went into cardiac arrest outside a firehouse and the rookie firefighters who could have helped him should have known he could respond. the cadet was properly trained, that firefighter h
's no stomach in this country, any americans or the president who wants to go to war over crimea in the ukraine, a country with very minimal economic impact in the western world, the vast majority of their trade is with russia. if they continue to provoke russia, what's going to happen likely is that russia will also do things economically. they have immense economic power over ukraine. half of all ukrainian exports go russia, that's where they get the foreign exchange reserves which they are getting low. if russia decides to impose costs on their imports saying your tractors don't meet our safety requirements that will be painful to you crane. russia can up the price of natural gas sharply. remember the west is promising a bail out. so every cost that russia imposes on ukraine is going to get paid for monetarily by the west. >> all right. you're right about that. they could literally turn off the natural gas. don jensen back to you. if putin mounted some large scale invasion the reports are 2,000 troops. those reports are not necessarily totally confirmed. i don't know what we really know. let
